Morning

Stories like this make it hard for me to understand the view that the death penalty should not exist for anyone.

"LUCASVILLE, Ohio -- A teen killer who told the parole board that he regretted letting eyewitnesses survive was executed Wednesday for a shotgun murder during a $15 robbery."

In a lighter side...Reason has a review of Team America: World Police, which I am ashamed to admit I missed. I will be there on Friday or Saturday though.

It should piss just about everyone off...note that Sean Penn wrote an angry letter to Matt Stone for stating that uniformed people should just stay home and not vote. Penn wrote this:

"It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world,"

Now since I haven't read the entire letter maybe there is a context, but it seems that the implication is that Penn is indicating that the uninformed voters would be more likely to vote for Kerry. Talk about a ringing endorsement of a candidate.
